START Encourages Ridership with Free Fares
Jackson, Wyo. June 19, 2017 – In a continued effort to reduce traffic, START Bus has eliminated the
fare for all bus rides between Jackson and Wilson, between Jackson and Stilson, and between Stilson and
Wilson. The bus ride from Stilson to Teton Village will remain free.
“The elimination of a bus fare for the trips to and from town to Wilson and Stilson is a focused effort to
help with the current traffic situation on HWY 22,” said Darren Brugmann, START Bus Director. “We
are attempting to reduce the number of cars on the road by encouraging START ridership.”
A fare of $3 will remain in place for individuals traveling to and from Jackson to the Teton Science School
residence, Calico/Roadhouse, Westbank, the Aspens and Teton Village. Riders traveling along the
Village Road (in between Stilson and Teton Village) will still have a $1 fare.
Riders can now jump on the Brown Line (Route 30) at 6:40 AM, 7:05 AM and 7:40 AM from Wilson
(Nora’s) to Jackson for free. They can also catch the Brown Line (Route 30) at 4:00 PM, 5:05 PM and
6:00 PM for free too.
These free bus fares started Friday are scheduled to last through the fall season. The fee structure will be
revisited before the winter schedule begins.

bike or rideshare. Please check www.startbus.com for details on all of these summer routes, schedules
